12 Parent Reviews for Duryea Elementary School

The teachers are wonderful however I feel that the problem is the parents. The children are disrespectful and it shows in the classroom. Two of my kids went there and I am so glad to be in a new elementary this coming school year. Parents...Raise your kids right!

This school is not good for the African American male. There is nothing in place to handle discipline. The administration and many of the teachers have poor class room management. Which is ultimately a disservice to the male ,especially AA, population. Protect your sons and keep them far away from ...  Read more

To say we are unsatisfied with this school is putting it lightly. Our son went from straight A's to failing the entire grade when we moved to this school. The open concept is VERY damaging to a child's education and that is a professional opinion. I have spoken to a large number of people in our neighborhood ...  Read more

My daughter 1st year at Duryea was last year. I'm not impressed and I feel that the majority demographic is catered to at this school. There isn't a lot of parent involvement becuase they advertise that Thursday is the day for volunteers. This is a turnoff for any parent that can volunteer any other ...  Read more

Unfortunately there is very little parent-school communication. Teachers seems great, but PTO was non-existent, very few to none activities. Wish we could move back to Walker, where the principal was very involved and the school had numerous activities, parental involvement, and the education provided ...  Read more

My children moved from Jowell to Duryea and the first year I was far more satisfied than I had been for the 3 years at Jowell combined. The teachers are very personable and take time to communicate with notes or calls. The nurse calls just to say if your child is not ill but came in, the principal is ...  Read more

My 2 children attended Duryea for 2 years until they were rezoned. I really like Mrs Harbin, the principle because she is one of the most caring and involved principles I have met. You can always count on her to show up in any events even during chuck e cheese or skate night. She cares about her students ...  Read more

I love this school. The staff are very organized and helpful. I especially love the teachers. I feel that they need more activities at this school. There are lots of parents that are involved. I am one of them. Whenever I can, I volunteer.

The Pre-K program is wonderful. It is a school that cares about the students. As soon as an overcrowding issue was identified they did not hesitate to create another class. In addition, they push the kids to excel.

I have had children there since the school opened last year and I particulary do not like the administration much. Some of the teachers are great, but you have to do your research. I don't like the fact that they schedule parent nights in the morning or at noon, which makes it very hard for working ...  Read more
